And when I sleep,

I wish that you were there with me.

I wish that I could cling to your sleeve

Until the sun rises and falls.


And when I walk,

I wish that you would walk with me.

Burning our feet on bare concrete

Until the road itself is gone.


And when I cry,

I wish that you would hold onto me.

Drowning in my heart, my thoughts incomplete.

Until the end of the dawn.


And when I die,

I wish that you would go to Hell for me.

And watch me eat the pomegranate seeds.

And take me home til it's cold.
